Bath salts are so 2013. Thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio’s entrancing portrayal of Jordan Belfort in the instant classic “Wolf of Wall Street,” America has a new favorite drug fascination: Quaaludes.
Despite his apparently perfect portrayal of a man deep in the throes of a ‘lude high, DiCaprio admits that he knew nothing about the drug prior to signing up for the role.
In fact, the real Belfort actually had to coach DiCaprio on how to mimic the effects of the drug, filming himself rolling around on the floor of DiCaprio’s living room.
Ironically, the whole experience was so physically taxing on Leo that he admitted he needed a chiropractor after filming his Quaalude scenes.
The irony might be lost on you if you don’t know anything about Quaaludes, so to bring you into the loop, we’ve listed 10 facts about the onetime legal drug that used to be considered as big a problem in the United States as heroin and cocaine.
